Overview of Harmony Retreat and Animal Rescue (HRAR)

Help Animals in Need

Every year over 1 million animals are euthanized. Others suffer needlessly in inhumane conditions. Harmony Retreat and Animal Rescue gives abandoned, unwanted or older pets, and animals in need of shelter- dogs, cats, horses, and other animals- a permanent, loving home.

Reflect, Reconnect, Revitalize

Harmony offers our human visitors – individuals, couples, families and groups – the opportunity to reflect, reconnect, revitalize and rejuvenate through activities for the mind, body and soul, including a variety of classes (meditation, yoga, cooking and gardening, for example), outdoor and seasonal activities. Whether visitors stay for a day, weekend, week or longer, they can (but are never required) to participate in activities available on the retreat grounds.

Help Us Help Others

Harmony will raise funds for rescue efforts, animal care, and grants for visitors, through events, appeals, and other fundraisers. We will ask (but not require) visitors to make donations.

Visitors who are able will pay for their stay at Harmony; those that cannot may apply for a full or partial grant or scholarship (as determined by an application process) from a fund set aside to help people in need.

Our Mission

Harmony Retreat & Animal Rescue's mission is to help people and animals find joy, peace, and love in a safe, positive environment that is deeply rooted in nature. Our organization aims to:

  • Provide all types of domestic animals with temporary or permanent housing
  • Provide people in our community the opportunity to reflect, reconnect, and revitalize their mind, body, and soul
  • Create a harmonious environment that fosters interaction between people and animals to promote well-being and a deep sense of being rooted in nature

Our board of directors and committee members are currently working to make our vision become a reality.  Many fundraising events are in the works to help us generate the capital needed to purchase land, build, and cultivate a talented, caring staff.
